My parents taught me the same lesson about the tree. They also helped me invest in some GE stock when I was the same age about $50. I recently sold a few shares to pay for my degree and buy a wedding ring. My wife and I were fortunate enough to get some cash from our friends and family we bought back the GE. This is a long term investment. We are looking to buy a house soon and I will need to remember to go plant a tree in the front yard.
